for what happened, and we can't go back to the old washington kind of routine, we're all responsible, therefore, no one is responsible. someone's got to be held responsible. second of all, i don't think the president's action matched his rhetoric when we send this individual to a civilian court. that person should be tried as an enemy combatant and terrorist. if we are at war we should not try that individual in a court other than a military trial. to have a person be able to get lawyered up when we need that information very badly, i think betrays or contradicts the president's view that we're at war. >> you promised close relations between the united states and pakistan. there are tensions. they think there's too many strings attached to u.s. aid money and they're upset with the escalating number of drone attacks, going after al qaeda and taliban targets. is your sense, senator lieberman to you first, is pakistan a full partner or are they still, as many have said they have done in the past, picking and choosing when to fight, which targets to hit? >> pakistan is a full partner in
news out of northwest washington, where crews are trying to fix a broken water main. it broke earlier thimorning at 17th and pea streets northwest in the dupont circle area. and that's where megan mcgrath is right now. she joins us live with the very latest. good morning, megan. >> reporter: good morning. i'm going to step out of the way here so you can take a live look at the area where the water is coming from there. you can see that's the location of the water main break. we're told it's a 20-inch water main, basically, right here near the intersection of "p" and 17th street. it's actually on 17th here. and it's been gurgling for quite some time. been going on since a little before 9:00 this morning. you can see that the water is still coming from the pavement. they have, kind of, shut it down a little bit here, while it's still coming out. it's nothing like what it was earlier this morning when this first happened. we have some eyewitness accounts of folks that say the water was actually shooting about 20 feet up into the air when it first occurred. a 20-inch water main, so this i
is up for re-election. he is not in washington today. he is back home in nevada. he has what is a campaign event dealing with local issues in nevada today. undoubtedly, he will be asked more about this. this would be the first time we would see him on camera since he released his apology and aides that i talk to say he is deeply embarrassed, he feels terrible, be that he calls the remarks inappropriate, doing all they can to try to acknowledge that this was a mistake and hopefully move on from their point of view. as you mentioned, republicans see this as an opportunity. there are republicans in leadership who say that when you look at what reid said and the bigger context of some other things that he said over time, they think that this is harmful to him and he should step aside. his says not a chance, he won't give up his position as majority leader and will, in fact, run for re-election. of course, we've seen some big names in the democratic party say it was time for them to retire. no indications of that from harry reid. this is a painful period for him to go through, and
to be a more effective inside player in washington in dealing with the congress and that is something some previous fed chairmen, paul volcker, alan greenspan, your time as the vice-chairman, you done a lot of washington before, so i don't think it was a help they didn't have this experience but i think that the portfolio skills he had figuring out what to do in this instance was the most important thing that we could have asked for in a fed chairman of this incredibly terrifying moment in history. >> host: what about his personality? >> guest: that's also interesting. you know, alan greenspan in my view made the fed a little bit too much like the vatican. he was the pulpit he was infallible and most people didn't know anybody else's mean and bernanke came to washington determined he said at the time to follow greenspan's the five policy but to be different than greenspan. i call him in the book to be the un-greenspan come to elevate the committee in the institution over the character of the chair and. i think actually that was a bit naive but it did help him build consensus that the fed s
on that point. our jeanne meserve joins us from washington with this developing story, and, jeanne, what you're about to reveal may be very concerning to some people. >> reporter: well, it certainly is to this privacy group, which says that the government has misled the public about exactly what those full-body imaging machines can do. the images produced by whole-body scanners don't leave much to the imagination. but the transportation security administration has said repeatedly, even on its own website, your privacy will be protected. >> the system has no way to save, transmit or print the image. >> reporter: a release says the machines have zero storage capability, but a tsa document written just three months earlier, spelling out requirements for potential manufacturers, said the machines had to have the capability to capture images of nonpassengers for training and evaluation purposes. the document was retained by epic, the electronic privacy information center. >> we think it's obvious the machines are designed to record images. >> reporter: the tsa's been lying? >> yes. i would use a
from washington. is epic satisfied with the tsa assurances? >> no. they're saying, we want to see the documents that tell us exactly what you're doing, that prove to us they're effective and demonstrate that privacy is protected. epic is saying until those questions are answered there shouldn't be any further deployment of these machines at the nation's airports. >> do these documents raise questions about whether the machines can detect explosive powders like petn? >> when you go through the document it says that the machine has to detect weapons, has to detect liquids, it has to detect explosives. it doesn't say anything specifically about powders. but when we asked the tsa about this capability, they insisted that, yes, the machines could detect powders hidden underneath clothes. >> homeland security correspondent, jeanne meserve for us, thank you. >>> later this hour, we're going to give you an inside look at the problems facing the transportation security administration. a reporter goes undercover as a tsa screener. barbara peterson tells us what she learned. and other big st
